Albigenses was a heresy during the Middle Ages that developed in the town, Albi, in Southern France. This error taught that there were two gods: the good god of light usually referred to as Jesus in the New Testament and the god of darkness and evil usually associated with Satan and the "God of the Old Testament." Anything material was considered evil including the body which was created by Satan. The soul, created by the good god, was imprisoned in the evil flesh, and salvation was possible only through holy living and doing good works. Please see Heresies: Albigenses for more information.
